Family Fun: CACC Adopt-A-Thon
Save lives, win raffle prizes, and enjoy entertainment at the Aug. 6 Cobb County Animal Control Adopt-A-Thon.
The Cobb County Animal Control (CACC) Shelter kicks off their race to win the ASPCA $100k Challenge by presenting a Adopt-a-Thon on Saturday, August 6, and you can help.
What's better than kids, dogs, and summer family fun? The festivities include vendors, food, music, animal rescue groups, police K-9 demonstrations, raffles, special adoption rates, and more.
You'll also get a chance to meet the county’s first full-time, on-staff veterinarian, Dr. Amy Belew. Belew, 38, whose roots are in Cobb, comes to the shelter from Holcomb Bridge Animal Hospital in Roswell where she practiced for more than two years.
You will not want to miss the festivities Saturday, Aug. 6 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 1060 Al Bishop Drive, Marietta.
